What You Get When You Join:

Simple to understand, step-by-step guidelines taking you through what you need to know and do to begin planning your project and finding a contractor you can trust.

Though it seems like a whole lot of stuff, I've broken it down into manageable chunks of information you can take in, download and quickly absorb.

15 Modules that take you through:

~ Plans and Specifications

~ Permits

~ Bids and Estimates

~ Hiring Contractors

~ Insurance Requirements

~ Payments and Deposits

~ Change Orders

~ Mechanics Liens

And access to me through emails as you go through the course with any questions you may have.

Plus, a sample Bid Proposal template and downloads through out the course to help you understand and recognize the different forms used in construction and how they can protect you.

BONUS!! You get a 20 minute call with me to ask any questions you may have, either before or after you've gone through the course - your choice!

So, if you're someone who is considering renovating or making major repairs to your home, you cannot afford NOT to get educated and informed on how to make wise choices and avoid a remodeling nightmare and an encounter with the dreaded contractor from hell.

Don't let yourself become another victim and subject yourself to the pitfalls of hiring and working with contractors.

The responsibility for protecting ourselves falls squarely on our shoulders - the government or litigation aren't going to bail you out should you fall prey to unscrupulous behavior.

Do yourself and your family the favor of getting informed first, before you begin the journey of renovating and hiring contractors, so that you can all have peace of mind knowing you've made the best decisions possible.

Hope to see you on the inside! And here's to your success...
